The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will release its election manifesto in Punjab today. Polling will be held in a single phase in all the constituencies of the state on February 20.
Meanwhile, in a flip-flop, sitting Congress MLA from Sri Hargobindpur Balwinder Singh Laddi rejoined the BJP on Friday after parting ways with the saffron party last month. BJP National General Secretary Tarun Chugh welcomed Laddi to the party in Batala. Fatehjung Bajwa, BJP candidate from Batala was also present.
However, six days after joining the saffron party, Laddi had returned to Congress fold and rejoined Punjab’s ruling outfit in the presence of AICC in-charge of Punjab affairs Harish Chaudhary and Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi.
